I am so happy to say that I got to fly back home to Toronto this summer to escape the humidity (because even during the heat wave in New York or Toronto it still wasn’t nearly as hot as Orlando!)

After having had the pleasure of attending Paris Fashion Week last year, I’ve felt an even stronger desire for more designers with Italy and French influence and playing with shapes a little more. The voluminous dress shirt sleeves, and the polka dots are examples of that.

I’ve always loved asymmetry. When I first started working in costume jewelry many years ago I regularly wore mismatched earrings and statement pieces in earthy materials. Jacquemus always reminds me of that stage when I truly started feeling more comfortable with fashion and wearing more eccentric and fun pieces.

With so many color combinations and clashing patterns trending for the last couple of seasons, I really wanted to focus on bringing back more staple pieces, neutral colors and stylish investment pieces that are not only trendy but more long term wearability into my wardrobe.

We have seen ruffles stay for over a year and great designers like Johanna Ortiz show that this isn’t dying anytime soon. The exaggerated voluminous sleeves are a wonderful trend but a good way to incorporate into the wardrobe. If it’s a flattering shape, unique detail and free of additional embellishments then you can mix, match and accessorize to create multiple looks.

I went ahead and wore my feminine Miu Miu heels in neutral tones and for a pop of color, my trusty Prada bag, which honestly has been one of the best purchases I’ve ever made.

    I’m loving the details in this outfit, your styling was perfectly executed, though it always is to be honest! I love that you’ve been leaning more towards Italian and French designers more. I also appreciate the two, especially Italian powerhouses. I find them to be bold, yet practical and they really pay mind to details. Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us, you look absolutely stunning!
